Slugger Mickey Mantle, Thurs- day's hero and Friday's'goat, was moved from fifth to the leadoff spot in the batting order by New York-Manager Casey Stengel. Man-1 ager Charlie Dressen sent young j Billy Loes to try to pitch the Dod- gers into a series tie. Each side offered wholesale lineup changes. Another crowd, cheered by Carl Erskine's record breaking 14 strikeouts in Friday's game, was on hand. Stengel said he would pitch Jim McDonald a 26-year-old righthander against the Dodgers in Sunday's fifth game, the last at Ebbets Field. Dressen said he didn't want to name his definite starter until aft- er today's game. He might not an- nounce him until game time Sun- day. FIRST INNING YANKEES: Mantle struck out on three pitches, making it the fifth straight time he has fanned. Collins took two balls then sent Robinson back nearly to the left field wall for his high fly. Bauer raised a soft foul pop to Hodges outside first base. No runs, no hits, no errors, none left. DODGERS: Gilliam was credited with an automatic double when Bauer misjudged his high fly in back of the right fielder. Reese bounced out to Collins, Gilliam taking third.

Three runs, three hits, no errors, one left. YANKEES: Berra went out on strikes. Woodling walked. Martin bounced to Hodges whose throw to Reese caught Woodling at sec- ond, Martin reaching first on the play. McDougald rolled to Reese who tossed to Gilliam, forcing Mar- tin at second.

Collins fumbled Loes' easy roller but recovered in time to toss to Gorman for the putout at first. Gilliam was credited with his second double when his high pop fly dropped among Rizzuto, Mantle and Woodling in short left center. Reese grounded out, Mc- Dougald to Collins. No runs, one hit, no errors, one left. THIRrTlNNING YANKEES Rizzuto flied to Furillo. Gorman struck out, swinging. Mantle swung at an 0-2 pitch and sent a long high fly to Snider in deep center.

But um- pire Gore ruled it a foul, Mana- ger Charley Dressen came out of the dugout to argue the decision. Snider hauled in Rizzuto's long fly in front of the left center field wall. Don Bollweg, a lefthanded hitter, batted for Gorman. Boll- weg was called out on strikes but had to be tagged out by Cam- panella who dropped the last pitch. Mantle was called out on strikes. It was the seventh time Mantle has been struck out in the series. Two runs, two hits, no errors, none left. DODGERS Sain went in to pitch for the Yankees. Robinson grounded out, Rizzuto to Collins.

Parker, 29, pretty dime store clerk eluded hundreds engaged in the manhunt. There were numerous reports of the nude Negro prowler, or prowl- ers, seen in Dallas for months by terrified women, but police attrib- uted at least part of them to in- creasing panic. Mrs. Parker's rape murder Wednesday night threw the city into a frenzy and sent citizens buy- ing guns, dogs, ammunition and safety devices for their doors. German Ship Lost in Collision With Ore Boat PORT HURON, Mich. UP) A Canadian pilot was killed as a small German freighter sank Fri- day night after colliding with a Great Lakes ore carrier in the St. Clair River on a moonless night. Seventeen crewmen of the ill- fated Difg Wallschiff, 882-ton Lu- beck, Germany, freighter its entire crew were rescued from the swift-moving river. The Wallschiff collided with the Pioneer, an ore carrier of the Cleveland-Cliffs fleet, in the narrow river between Port Huron and Sarnia, Ont. No crewmen were missing or in- jured on the Pioneer. It remained afloat, apparently in no immediate danger, and anchored at the scene. The dead man was identified as Capt. Harold Patterson of Kings- ton, Ont., pilot aboard the German freighter. The Pioneer was downbound with ore when it struck the Wallschiff, northbound from Detroit to Mus- kegon, Mich., with 200 tons of steel beams among her cargo. Three Wallschiff crewmen were taken to a Port Huron hospital. None was reported seriously in- suffering from shock and their ordeal in the water.

Yet his disappearance and its ramifications have become even more puzzling daily with rumors and numerous tips adding to the complexity of the case. A family spokesman denied pub- lished reports that ransom had been demanded and that the parents have been in contact with the abductors. The mother and father said again last night they were only waiting and hoping. Chief of Police Bernard C. Bran- non repeatedly has said his de- partment's chief concern is to get Bobby back unharmed. "I haven't been in contact with the family since they asked us Monday not to he said. Police say only routine tips are being run down. The child was taken from the school on a ruse by a woman pre- tending to be his aunt. A taxi- cab driver who had the woman as a fare said she was chunky, "a good looker" with clear skin, about 5 feet 5 inches tall and not more than 35 years old. The woman got the child out of school by tell- ing a nun his mother was ill. The cabbie, Willard P. Creech, 63, drove the woman and the boy to a parking lot a few blocks from the school. He last saw them, standing near a light blue car inj the lot. Robert Ledterman, a business associate of the 71-year-old Green-1 lease, has been spokesman for the family. Ledterman, mentioning the nu- merous calls and letters the fam- ily had received, said, "all of these messages seem to mean well I to this cause. to give the best in me to interpret the Constitution fairly and defend it against any assault, regardless of the source." Warren was named chief justice by President Eisenhower Wednes- day. His resignation as governor becomes effective tomorrow at midnight. He is scheduled to fly to Wash- ington tomorrow. He will be sworn in and will preside at the Monday opening of the new session of the high court. In the farewell to Californians who elected him governor for an unprecedented three terms, he cri- ticized those who opposed his pro- gram of enlarging and moderniz- ing California's state institutions and highways as "people who re- fuse to admit the necessity of keeping pace with growth." Warren planned to spend today in final preparation for turning over the governorship to Lt. Gov. Goodwin J. Knight, who will be sworn in Monday as governor.

A reporter at the scene said he saw three bodies removed. HALLOCK, Minn. UP) Potato salad was tentatively blamed today for the food poisoning that marred Hallock High School's homecom- ing. Dr. G. A. Knutson, village health officer, met with the Board of Ed- ucation this morning to investigate the mass nausea. Their check wasn't complete and won't be un- til all the affected persons are in- terviewed, but Dr. Knutson said the potato salad appeared to have been the cause. Sickened after eating the hot lunch in the school cafeteria Fri- day were an estimated 50 persons, Knutson said. Most were stu- dents, but some teachers and visi- tors also were included. The lunch included corn, milk, bread, butter and the potato salad. There was no meat. Dr. Knulson's investigation showed that the .steril- izer unit for the school's kitchen utensils was 'used Friday, ruling out the possibility that pots and pans could have caused the trouble. Still baffling investigators is the question of how most of the 200 persons who ate the lunch failed to become ill. Among those sickened was Mil- ton Lindeack, the school superin- tendent. He was released from the hospital Friday night. Five stu- dents hospitalized overnight were released this morning. Included were Janice Sorenson, the home- coming queen, and William Bergh, captain of the football team.1 Despite Bergh's absence, Hallock came through with a 12-0 win over Middle River Friday night. The homecoming parade, scheduled for earlier in the day, was canceled due to the food poisoning.

Send for Ambulances State police communications re- ported a request had been sent out for ambulances and that 39 men were trapped. Part of the collapsed material was concrete, police said. A spokesman at the plant said it was not known how many work- men were trapped or whether any had been injured. Ambulances were rushed to the scene from Everett, 'Boston and other communities. First reports said the accident occurred 35 feet underground when a staging gave way. Ropes were being used to raise the trapped men. The tank was being built for storage use. Fire apparatus was rushed to the scene as a precautionary meas- ure. Everett is an industrial city of some residents, which is sep- arated from Boston by the Mystic River. First Victims A spokesman at the Massachus- etts General Hospital in Boston, about three miles from the scene said: "The victims are just com- ing in now. Two stretchers just went by.

HAROLD OLIVER WASHINGTON up) _ President Eisenhower has a sore right elbow, "painful and annoying" but noth- ing to worry about, the White House reports. Presidential Press Secretary James C. Hagerty told inquiring newsmen late yesterday that Ei- senhower's elbow was ininred when knocked against a White House door about two months ago, is being treated with heat and is progressing satisfactorily. Hagerty denied a published re- port that Eisenhower has bursitis inflammation of a snc which "lubricates" the body's joints to reduce friction.. Hagerty also de- nied the President has any cal- cium deposit in the elbow. In fact, he said in response to questions, Eisenhower's health is I excellent except for the sore arm. I When asked about a pub'ished i report that an operation might be I necessary, Hagerty replied: "I am not even going to an- I swer that. I am not a medical authority, and that doesn't mean one thing or the other." Hagerty said the reason the chief executive has not played golf since he returned from his Colo- rado vacation two weeks ago was that he wanted to be with his three grandchildren. The chil- dren's parents, Maj. and Mrs. John Eisenhower, are returning to the White House this weekend from Ft. Benning, Ga., where the President's son is now stationed. The President had only two en- gagements yesterday, including a cabinet meeting. He spent most of the afternoon working on two speeches on his October schedule Oct. 15 before the Future Farmers of America at Kansas City, Mo., and for Oct. 19 at Fal- I con Dam on the U.
